Haggerston Hawkmoth

During a visit to Haggerston Castle's Italian Walled Garden, a hidden garden which is currently being restored, I spotted a Hummingbird Hawkmoth, feeding itself on lavender and scabious. It was quite flighty and did not stay long before zooming away over the wall. But it made a visit to Haggerston worth while. A bit of calm amongst the frantic holidaymakers!

Not sure who to credit the pic for but GREAT job!


  1. What a fab piccy. Did you take it?

  2. Nah! Although I hope to do so having splashed the cash on a decent camera!! Just need to remember to take it with me when I go out now!

  3. Hehe those Hawk Moths are hard buggers to catch on film.
